Here is what others said about Larry’s Back-to-School Presentations:
"On behalf of our superintendent and entire staff of administrators, teachers, and support staff, I want to both thank you and congratulate you for an absolutely spectacular “knock-you-off-your-feet” presentation for the Barren County Public School District’s opening day for employees… We laughed one moment and felt tears gather in our eyes the next moment. We enjoyed your stories and appreciated your experience as a high school teacher. We sensed your compassion and felt your passion for education, for children, for each of us as your colleagues. We left that auditorium feeling important and needed and ready."

"Thank you for the excellent presentations that you made to the School District of Pickens County’s teachers and administrators on August 12. You did a wonderful job of matching your presentation to the two different audiences (elementary then secondary). In addition, you had no problem handling an audience of 500 plus people twice in one day and with less than comfortable temperatures. This was obvious when high school teachers/coaches were still hanging on to every word at the end of your presentation and it was 3:00 PM. Several teachers said they could have listened to you all day."
